Donnie Long, one of our incredible team members, will be spending most of the month of July in Central America with teams from Lifechurch in Allentown, PA.
Donnie (or “Udon” as I like to call him) has volunteered hundreds of hours to help establish Lemonade International over the past year and has helped us make tremendous strides in moving our work forward. He has made trips to Guatemala to serve in La Limonada, captured the community on film, designed and maintained our website and has played a huge role in the overall development of our organization.
Along with Donnie’s passion for the people of La Limonada, he also has a passion for injustice wherever people are living in poverty and oppression. He has traveled on his own to serve in Uganda, Ghana, Kenya and the Dominican Republic. He has also been an important part of helping to lead short-term teams from Lifechurch to Haiti.
Donnie’s heart for people around the world now leads him to Central America where he will be part of a construction team working in El Salvador for the first leg of his journey. The small group of men will then have to make their way through Honduras to meet up with another team from the church in Nicaragua where Donnie will be spending the last leg of his journey.
As you may know from news reports, there is major political unrest in Honduras at this time. So, we ask you to please pray for Donnie and the team he is traveling with as they make their way through the country to meet up with the team in Nicaragua. Also, as Donnie has requested, please pray for the people and the government of Honduras… that God’s peace would rest on them.
Donnie, our hearts are with you as you follow your heart to serve people living at “the ends of the earth”.
